Shane Nearman is best described as a creator. Art is powerful, and Shane creates art that captures the viewer - to pause and reflect deeper on life, mortality, death, existence, beauty and transcendence - to see the invisible. Shane’s background in art and design at the School of Visual Arts in NYC continues to influence unique concepts and exploration of ideas, processes and techniques as an artist. These materialize using a variety of mediums including oil and acrylic paint, ink, charcoal, coffee, gold leaf, and glass on canvas, wood, and paper with great emphasis to detail and craftsmanship. Shane explores creative uses for materials: using stained glass, the reflective and precious metallic attributes of gold leaf and silver chrome, or small machines and mechanical parts for movement in an artwork.
Shane is often processing how to create thought provoking artworks of discovery - to engage the soul, and invite the viewer to move into a space of contemplative and transcendent experience. This type of experience is personal to the viewer and can cause a paradigm shift of perception deep in the heart, mind and soul to influence consciousness, understanding, and compassion. Ultimately, Shane’s artwork allows the viewer to realize their own mortality and human condition, inducing revelation to the humanity and uniqueness of each individual life. Shane’s art is a contemporary type of memento mori, with the hope of stimulating cultural reconciliation and unity.
